(Society Meetings - Zoom Only - 1:30 pm ET)
This on-line event is free for members of JGSGW. Nonmembers may register in advance (Add To Cart) to attend for a guest fee of $5.
Join us for a primer on how to find synagogue records, what genealogical
material they include, see examples, and hear about JewishGen's new Shul
Records America: the first-of-its-kind inventory of American synagogue
Finding synagogue records can be problematic and time consuming as there are errors in catalogs and a variety of ways materials are described. To make it easier, and in one place, JewishGen starts the search for you with Shul Records America. This new finding aid points to the location of American synagogue records. Launched in fall 2022 with over 500 collections held at 50 repositories or websites, about 20% include URLS for digitized materials.Not only a historical resource but important as modern-day synagogues merge or close, Shul Records America also encourages congregations to preserve
records with genealogical value.
